    does anyone know if the factory subwoofer is compatible with aftermarket head units??? I just installed the Alpine INA w900BT in my 2011 Taco and everything works but i cant get the subwoofer to put out bass. It is getting full power and it sounds like it is trying to put out noise, but it wont hit like it use to. Any experiences??????

    You mare than likely have the wrong wiring harness. In order to use the stock amp and sub, there is a different harness that is used. Which harness do you have?
